Impulse, J = Ft
In all parts, consider the following situation. In a baseball game the batter swings and gets a good solid hit. His swing applies a force of 12,000 N to the ball for a time of 0.70×10-3 seconds.
A) Assuming that this force is a constant, what is the magnitude J of the impulse on the ball?
B) What is the shape of the net force vs. time graph?
C) Why is the graph that shape?
